Inquire about your employer’s community involvement
Does your employer or association contribute to community services? There is no time like the present to inquire deeper into your employer or association’s community involvement. Most local businesses and corporations give through the United Way, provide sponsorships, or provide local matching grants. Also, many prefer to support their employees and members in the process. By mentioning or recommending the Lilac Services For The Blind as a reputable place to contribute, you may be able to initiate a new source of support for the training of the blind and visually impaired people of your community. Workplace conversations can be the easiest ways to give Lilac publicity. We believe that your opinion does matter. Please inquire into your employer and association’s community involvement policy.
Thanks to our many donors!!!
